Ha ha ha ha!
Well spotted, El,
I'll let you in on a little secret!
'he' got the rosebuds as the back of
TESCO'S, they in the 'artificial flowers'
section!! and selling
at discount prices! LOL..!
O, the shame of it all!
Hoping everyone here is in good form,
there's a real touch of Spring around now.
Thanks El for your other thoughts,
my friend is still 'hanging in' there,
kept comfortable and we all are spending
time with her in different shifts.
LOL Grace....

does not distract from the beauty of your poem however..
and a pleasure to read.

It's good to know your friend is being kept comfortable
and has good friends around her...so important at this time.

Threatening rain as I speak, can always tell by the way the
birds sing.....

Have a pleasat afternoon my friend....

Hello Flower....feeling better? Sincerely hope so.
I sure miss my dogs, could never go through it again,
and my heart goes out to Vee too.
Just been watching Animal Cops Houston....a lovely lady
had to part with her three Pot Bellied Pigs, due to finances,
they were like children to her....on the positive side, she
was happy that they got good homes and can be admired for
doing what was best for them.
Often think of how wonderful you were to drive all that way
to rescue Jax from the hurricane. I saw where he sensed your
friend's distress...his own background must have given him a
sixth sense, sort of more tuned in to folk's feelings...it's like
everything else, if everything is peaches and cream all one's life,
then nothing to fall back on.....know what I mean?!...
Getting a bit deep now even for me.....plus, have a heavyweight
cat (Joe Celt) determined to walk on my keypad..so quitting while
I am ahead....
have a pleasant evening my friend....love and stuffxx
Good afternoon, Lady El ... not much to report here that won't make it to another frivolous thread ... A+ report from San Antonio yesterday ... otherwise the materials for my new flooring will be delivered today between 9-12 so they can "aclimate" and be installed on Tuesday ... so I'll be maneuvering INSIDE my house all weekend ... well, SU/MO I'll be out of town at the Casino as I usually go for my birthday, or try to go every year ... Tuesday is installation date ... it's all good ... Hope all is well with you and your yours ... it's time for breakfast ... Happy Day to you ... Love, FC <3 ...

I knew all those rules except did not know 0 was wild ... have to keep that in mind!!!
Good morning, Franko ... How are you today? Hope you are well ... Okie dokie over on this side of Texas, lol ... The other worker gave a reason for leaving as "personal reasons" ... she was working "too many hours" in order to qualify for "free medical care" ... The company she's working for does not provide health benefits ... so she has to reduce her hours of working in order to reduce her income to qualify for "free medical care" ... you know, the type the taxpayers pay for? Yep, that kind!!!!! Do Not Get Me Started!... So, I've not seen her since ... I suppose that is her story and she's sticking to it, lol ...

Wishing you a beautiful day, Franko ... Enjoy it! FC <3 ...

Regarding the 'BLADE RUNNER'/Pistorus case
which is very sad indeed, and I think it's
very early days in the full story,

still, I cannot deny having had a smile or two
at the puns on the TV news which went quite unnoticed
by news presenters who should know better>

Two examples >

'His story simply doesn't stand up'

'That was contradicted later,
it looks like they got him
on the back foot'

Anxiously awaiting the next "P.. one"!!!(:

'Morning Dear Rose,
I have another one from Mother Nature this morning...there are
buds on the Clematis that I had almost written off. Actually
it is a plant which I bought at a discounted price from a store
who had given up on it, probably as it had not been watered while
it was waiting for a buyer on the shelf in the store....grieves me to see that, anyway, I nurtured it over the Summer months but no
sign of life, then yesterday, St. Valentine's Day, new shoots, and today I see buds. Happy with that.
Valentine's Day is considered to be purely commercial by my beloved...lol...if you ask me it is a cop out...I shamed him by buying him a small gift anyway! LOL!
He has, however, kindly taken our cat Ginger Bailey for his surgery today and I shall collect him late this afternoon.
I hope you have another beautiful day, and it stays that way for you.
Love-&-Hugs...
Hi Lady Eleanor...
Good for you letting that man of yours know that it is the thought that counts not the dollar value of a gift... and good for him taking Ginger Bailey to the vet for you.. I do hope that everything went well with his surgery..
I made my Pack of wild dogs mad at me last night because I gave them all a worm treatment... I had to practically sit on Miss Josie Wails... but I got the meds down her and I don't have to worry anymore on her behalf.. I decided to treat them all when I saw one of those nasty round worms in Mr. Mips droppings..
It's so easy for them to get infected due to the feral cats that roam all over the neighborhood... and even though Mip was the only one they have shown up in, I figure it's best to treat them all.. Better to be safe than sorry...
I do hope that your day was a really good one and I hope that your night has been peaceful and that all of your dreams were sweet...
Sending you all of my best wishes...
((Love-n-Hugs))

Not a great fan of hers for several reasons:

1. She allowed the Argies to believe that we weren't interested in the Falklands. Then, when they made the desperate move to try and grab them (1982), she went to war. People forget that before that war, she was very unpopular: it was the war that got her re-elected. I was serving at the time and people I knew died in that war, a war that could have been avoided by stronger policy earlier.

2. Whilst she took on the unions, which did need tackling, she also destroyed the manufacturing base within this country. We are now an economy largely reliant on the service industry, yet our greatness was built on being a manufacturing country. The problem is that the service industry can move much more readily abroad.

3. She fostered the idea that "you're worth what you earn", which immediately devalued the standing of workers such as teachers and nurses who have never been well-paid, but used to have some status in the community.

4. By the end, she had lost the plot politically - which is why the mandarins in the party ousted her as leader. The Community Charge (Poll Tax) was a very misguided policy that led to riots and civil disobedience. In the end, the Conservatives realised that she had become a liability.

Obviously, this is just my view, there are many in the UK that eulogise the Thatcher years.

A little matter of bankrupting our country tended to put me
